The technical requirements, general requirements, escalation requirements and complete understanding of the scope of work are crucial in construction estimation. The tender process often adds the pressures faced by professionals in the industry. Delays, poor documents, inaccurate estimations on value of work, ill-equipped staff managing tenders, and risks being passed onto Contractors are just a few of the challenges. This 2-day workshop will endeavour to take the delegates through the process of tendering and construction estimation to ensure handover to the site is smooth should the tender be successful. You will discuss how to develop strategies for preparing well-researched bids, how to mitigate risks and how to effectively engage all participating stakeholders. Delegates will also be able to understand the conditions of their contracts and how to modify them in ways that are mutually beneficial without taking on excessive risk.
